Tips for a Parent-Teacher Conference

Follow these tips from The Tutoring Center, Middletown DE for a successful parent-teacher conference.

Be Prepared

Preparation is key when it comes to having a successful parent-teacher conference. While the conference is a great way for you and the teacher to get to know each other, it is also a great way to get your child off on the right foot this school year. To get the most out of your meeting with the teacher, be prepared with a list of topics, questions, and concerns that you would like to address with the teacher. This will help guide your meeting and ensure you don't forget to bring up issues that are important to you.

Be On Time

Most parent-teacher conferences have a time limit because they are scheduled on the same day as other parent's conferences. Putting together a list of topics will help ensure your time with the teacher is well spent, but to get the most out your time it is crucial that you arrive on time. Your best bet is to arrive a little early just to be sure you get your full time.

Listen to the Teacher

Although you may have a lot of questions, it is also important that you listen to what the teacher needs to say. Your child's teacher will probably explain the curriculum, plans for the year, and the expectations they have for your child. Listen to what they are communicating and ask for clarification when you don't understand.

Follow Through

If the teacher gives you tips and suggestions that you can implement at home, be sure to follow through with them. Their advice is supposed to help your child grow academically outside of the classroom, so it's important that it is taken seriously. Don't forget to keep in touch with the teacher just in case you have concerns at a later date.
